Diploma in High School Physics

This free online course examines the definition of Physics, as well as the concepts of mass, force, motion, and energy.

Publisher: ADU
Physics is the natural science that studies matter, its motion and behavior through space and time, and the related entities of energy and force. Physics is one of the most fundamental scientific disciplines, and its main goal is to understand how the universe behaves. By the end of this course, you will have a strong grasp of concepts of mass, force, motion, and energy. So, register for this course today and begin your next learning journey!

Physics, a tremendous, eye-opening, and forever-changing science, requires the learner to have a solid knowledge of mathematics, including algebra, chemistry, and biology. Physics provides the foundation for natural sciences, as it explains the world around us. If you pay close attention to the world around you, you’ll constantly come up with questions and investigations both in and out of the classroom. Simple, child-like questions such as "How will I catch the ball?" and "How far should I push this punching bag?" are physics-related questions. This course introduces the learner to the basic concepts behind Physics, the branch of science that primarily studies matter, energy, and their interactions. Physics contributes to the technological infrastructure and provides trained personnel needed to take advantage of scientific advances and discoveries. With the aid of scientific discoveries, physicists hypothesize relationships, design experiments, and complete tests to turn hypotheses into valid theories.

This course begins by introducing you to the mechanics of physics. Units of measurement were among the earliest tools invented by humans. The definition, agreement, and practical use of units of measurement have played a crucial role in human endeavor from early ages up to the present. Units of measurements are important because, without standardized units, it would be extremely difficult for scientists to express and compare measured values in a meaningful way. You will learn about unit conversions and the guidelines for good graphing techniques. Work and Energy are significantly important in our everyday lives and scientific engagements. There are several good examples of work that can be observed in our everyday life. From a horse pulling a plow through the field to a student lifting a backpack full of books upon his shoulder, etc. By the end of this course, you should be able to identify and explain the different types of work and energy.

Next, you will be introduced to the concept of electromagnetism. Electricity and magnetism are separate yet interconnected phenomena associated with electromagnetic force. Together, they form the basis for electromagnetism, a key physics discipline. Have you ever experienced a feeling of electric shock while coming in contact with a household appliance? or while trying to plug your phone to charge? Well, was it a scary experience? But, why does that happen? Also, why don’t we get a similar experience when we are in contact with wooden materials? By the end of this course, you will be able to differentiate between the two types of materials with the aid of examples. Everything we hear and see is based on the information our bodies take in. No single answer to the question “What is light?” satisfies the many contexts in which light is experienced, explored, and exploited. This course analyzes the different laws that govern how light interacts with matter and changes direction. So, register for this course and begin your next learning journey!
